From the Heart Stamps- Slot Mashine

I will end this week with another {From the Heart Stamps} card. Faith’s death is still incomprehensible, but through your digital images I will always remember her and also the time we have spent “online” and in “CyberSpace” together.

I used one of the Images of “Slot Machine Birdbrain” on my card. I do not know how long the shop will be open – so far – it still seems to work. So, use the chance to buy the images you always wanted to have. I would also like to remind you of the “GOFundMe” page. So far, more than $ 4.700 has been donated for Faith´s family. Every little donation helps. THANKS !

From the Heart Stamps- Autumn Flower Jar

In memory of Faith from {From the HeartStamps} I colored some of her images. This lovely autumnal image called “Autumn Flower Jar”.

I have mentioned that I always color to the end, because I adjust the coloration to my chosen Designpaper. Here it was the other way around. It’s so easy to color, but I find it very hard to find the right paper afterwards. Here I have not found a paper to the blue tone of the flower but I think it is ok. How do you do it ? First color or at the end ?

I took the Viva La Verve September Sketch for my layout.

From the Heart Stamps- Harvest Medley

Because of my DT work for {From the Heart Stamps} I have many printed and uncolored images on my desk and I had the need to color. I do not usually do that before I have chosen a layout and paper, but now I just colored. Since Faith died in July, it’s the first time I use her images. I miss her very much and also the work with my team buddies.

I used “Harvest Medley” on my card. I do not know how long the shop will be open – so far – it still seems to work. So, use the chance to buy the images you always wanted to have. I would also like to remind you of the “GOFundMe” page. So far, more than $ 4500 has been donated for Faith´s family.

Sad farewell…..

I´ve got the sad news that my lovely friend Faith, Illustrator and Owner from {From the Heart Stamps} has passed away. As many of you know, Faith was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2016 and had been in treatment since then. After a courageous battle she died peacefully in a care facility.

I´ve been with Faith since 2012 and and was very honored to got a Position in her Designteam. Since then, we had a wonderful respectful and creative time – together with the entire Team. I will miss it very much. Everyone who knew Faith, knows what a great Person she was.  Even if I have never met her personally, I have lost a wonderful “Online Friend”. She will always have a special place in my heart.

There is a GoFundMe campaign to support her husband and children. They will use the money for expenses, college funds, or whatever else come up during this difficult time. I think that is a great thing.

 

 

I think the most popular images that Faith has created were the Birdbrains. This card I made some time ago and all the more now, this saying is perfect for what I feel when I think of Faith.

 

From the Heart Stamps – May Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to our {From the Heart Stamps} May Blog Hop ! We have a “CASE it” theme this month. Each team member will be showcasing a card CASE-D (copy and share everything) from another teammate. This will be a huge FUN !!

As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. We will select a random winner from the comments on each (!) blog.

We are also having a link up contest with this hop. We invite you to pick one of the FTHS DT members and “CASE” any of their cards and add it to linky collection on the FTHS Blog, by Sunday May 7th. Everyone who enters will be entered into a random drawing. One lucky winner will win three images of choice from the store!

So, if you have arrived from our lovely Doni you are on the right track, if not why don´t you start on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog, so you don´t miss anything !

I have the honor to CASE a card from our very talented Jo Edwards. I looked at her blog, went back to Oct, 2015 and decided to case a Christmas Card because I like the layout and the CAS style. I used the same image, the same layout but a different embossing folder, different colors, and design paper. I am happy about the result and I hope Jo and you like it as well.

This is Jo´s card and the Details about it can be found here.

AND now head over to our lovely Jo Edwards and be curious whom she CASE-d from the Team.

Thanks for hopping with us this weekend ! The Hop will end on Sunday, May 7th at 6am EST. Winners will be posted on the {From the Heart Stamps} blog on Wednesday, May 10th.

This is the last {From the Heart Stamps} inspiration for a while.  We are taking a break while Faith continues her treatment. Thank you for your loyalty and support. Hopefully we will be back soon.
